Right-wing group calling for Toronto casino to pay for subways
A right-wing advocacy group is pushing for a Toronto casino to pay for subways.
The Toronto Taxpayers Coalition is presenting a policy paper at city hall this morning calling it the "Transit Funding Trifecta."
they say their plan could bring in $400-million in revenue from hosting fees for having a casino in Toronto, licensed gaming tables in the hospitality industry, and revenue from online gaming.
The coalition says the money could be used to build 1 km of underground subway tunnel and one subway station per year.
